Nukeproof Critical Armour – Knee/Elbow

If your in the market for some new protection for those bits on the body that stick out a bit you might want to have a look at these bad boys.  The guys at Hotlines kindly sent over these for a good old beating/testing on the Tweed-valley hillsides.

First impressions are they feel good and tuff and like they'll take a good hit or 2. Plenty padding around the knee and a good hard shell up front to protect that knee cap. The elbow pad on the right pretty much looks like a smaller version of the knee pad also with loads of padding on the sides without making it big and bulky

The truth be known I don’t usually wear elbow pads but recently with all the more extreme enduro type tracks that are appearing on the hills around the Innerleithen area it’s time I started wearing them, I’ve took a few knocks over the last few months that I’ve got off lucky and well I need my arms to work properly so I can earn money 🙂  Look out for an update on how these pads have taken a beating over the next few months.

Price for the Critical knee pad are – £44.99
Price for the elbow pads come in at – £39.99
